āœ… Monday Check-in ā€“ Set your weekly goals

Techdegree Graduate Spotlight

Happy Monday! šŸŽ‰

Are you ready for a successful week of learning and creating?

Mondays can be rough, but they don't have to be. Carve out some time in your day to write down intentions and goals for the week.

For best results, you'll want your goals to be SMART.

ā„¹ļø What are SMART Goals?

Techdegree Graduate Spotlight Infographic by The Coaching Tools Company

  • Specific ā€“ Clarity is key to achieving your goals.
  • Measurable ā€“ Tracking your goals and checking them off is imperative.
  • Attainable ā€“ You want to be able to be in control of completing your goals.
  • Realistic ā€“ Don't let yourself burn out and take on too much - be realistic.
  • Time-based ā€“ Set deadlines and time limits to help you stay accountable to yourself.

šŸ‘ Examples:

  • I will complete the Coda Basics track this week.
  • I will learn with Treehouse for 30mins each day.
  • I will spend 1hr coding each day.

I recommend setting 3 goals per day. If that feels like too much, go with 3 goals for the week. Remember: Your goals need to fit reasonably into your life so that you're gaining momentum as you achieve them and build productive habits.

šŸ“ Daily Wrap-up

At the end of each day, write down or check off what you've achieved. You'll be amazed at how this builds your sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, productivity, forward momentum, and keeps Imposter Syndrome at bay.

We believe in you - you've got this! āœØ
